Anne Hathaway plays the role of a mother of an illegitimate child, who is forced into prostitution, in "Les Miserables", which is based on the musical with the same title by Alain Boublil, Claude-Michel Schönberg and Herbert Kretzmer.
The 30-year-old actress, who tied the knot with actor Adam Shulman in September, had to lose 25lb to get the look of a malnourished prostitute in the film and stayed away from her hubby to get into the skin of the character.
"Adam and I had worked out that I was going to do the first part by myself, because he has a job, he has a life, he can't just drop everything to be with me every second. Then he was going to come and stay with me when I had to do the weight loss because I would be feeling so depleted. But about three days into it I realised I was going to have to ask him if he didn't mind me being by myself - because he was making me so happy. I said, 'I really need to be a bit more miserable actually', so he went home and I crawled inside the misery of the character just fine without him," the actress told The Sun.
"I never thought about what I was doing as a sacrifice, because there are people that really do it. And even though I was technically really losing weight and I really cut off all my hair, it was for the sake of art - it was play-acting. So I never got too impressed with myself about it," Hathaway, who starved for her character, told the Sun.
"Les Miserables" is an upcoming British musical drama based on the musical with the same title by Alain Boublil, Claude-Michel Schönberg and Herbert Kretzmer, which in turn was an adaptation of 1862 French novel by Victor Hugo.
Directed by Tom Hooper, the film features Hugh Jackman, Russell Crowe, Anne Hathaway and Amanda Seyfried in the lead roles.
